Biden Brings Up Islamophobia During Criticism Of Antisemitism Outbreak

President Joe Biden finally condemned the violent protests that have broken out in college campuses across the U.S. However, he still found a way to make it about islamophobia instead of strictly condemning antisemitism.

“There should be no place on any campus, no place in America for antisemitism or threats of violence against Jewish students,” he said before adding, “There is no place for hate speech or violence of any kind, whether it’s antisemitism, Islamophobia or discrimination against Arab-Americans or Palestinian-Americans. It’s simply wrong. There’s no place for racism in America. It’s all wrong. It’s un-American.”

Biden also indicated that he does not think the National Guard should be brought in to tear apart the protests.

According to Fox News, law enforcement sources indicated that Biden’s mention of Islamophobia confused observers as that has not seen a spike in the U.S.

In a post to X criticizing Biden for his Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz wrote, “Why can’t President Biden simply denounce antisemitism without pandering to Muslims and Arabs.

“But the crisis is about antisemitism ,discrimination and violence against Jews, not against other groups. Why won’t he just condemn Jew hatred. ?” he wrote in another post.

Hugh Hewitt, host of “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” also slammed Biden for mixing in Islamophobia in his address of the hatred displayed against Jews.

“@POTUS takes 2:40 to get to the hatred of Jews on full display. Shortly thereafter he mixes in, of course, Islamaphobia. It is a teleprompter, of course, but his writers are spent. They don’t have the ability to compose, nor he to deliver, a forceful speech,” he wrote.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) also weighed in, calling Biden “impotent.”

“President Biden still won’t forcefully condemn the Hamas mobs on campuses. He’s terrified of them. A complete lack of leadership from an impotent president,” he wrote.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) suggested that Biden’s remarks might be more strategic than a goof.

“To have any chance of winning Michigan in November, Joe Biden has made the political calculation that he needs to equivocate on Israel, equivocate on defending American Jews and equivocate on protecting Jewish students at universities,” Zeldin stated, adding, “Hamas sympathizers have taken over college campuses across this country calling for the death of Jews. Weak leadership is the play call at the White House, demonstrating an incredible lack of moral clarity and courage. This is a time to singularly, emphatically and powerfully condemn antisemitism.”

In defense of Biden, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates brought up instances of attacks on Muslims.

“In Chicago, a 6-year-old child was brutally killed and his mother stabbed. Three college students of Palestinian descent, two of whom are American citizens, were shot in Vermont – paralyzing one. The FBI has sounded the alarm about rising crime and threats against Muslims, Arab Americans and Palestinian Americans in recent months. Appalling language, threats and violence have targeted the Muslim community,” Bates said, adding, “President Biden cares about the rights, dignity and safety of all Americans.”
